And before anyone here calls me: "Paranoid", that's just Endemic to the organization you work for. Think about it.

/m67117 Don't forget: If those (several) parcels came from the SAME route, that Carrier might be the Target for mistreatment by management. They might be Targeting him, because they know they'll have to cut his route, etc...And in that case, no you should not stand for it.

/m67117 Lost in Boston is right. That would have been the only way to un-do the damage done, to the Carriers who should have gotten the count for those parcels. Pursuing it through the Grievance procedure would have been Secondary, or maybe not at all - as long as management acknowledged the Faux Pas, and added that time to the route, instead of bickering over it and jeopardizing the entire inspection.

/m67117 In my opinion, the CCA should have filled out a 3996 for the work performed on the route and that time would be added to the route for that day.

/m67117 So are you trying to say they should have called you back to the office to pick up those parcels? In our office a clerk takes out parcels found missorted and the carrier has already left for the street. And not one of us gives a damn.

Hello, we are having route counts and today management had someone carry a couple of packages that were found late by a CCA. I thought this is something that should not happen. Our steward said that it's not worth a grievance. This is the first route count I've been through so if anyone can point me in the right direction in the contract that I can bring up, or if I'm wrong and this is totally okay, please show me.

I hit them. Hard. Did 11 hours and when I got back the PM asked me to go hit a few boxes. When I finally got back I asked why he didn't send a CCA back out. He said they were already gone home. So I wished him a good weekend and thanked him for the penalty. He said "There's no penalty. You had a holiday." So I walked him over to the calendar and counted on my fingers "Monday...Tuesday..etc." I could see the blood coming up from his neck. He asked if the floor supervisor knew. I showed him my approved 3996 and reminded him that he sent me back out because the CCA's were already gone. Then I asked if there would be anything else I could do for him tonight and wished him a wonderful weekend.

They often forget the people who's day off was the holiday haven't gotten an 8 hour day. That and the people who have Friday off need it before Friday. Me I got my bonus working Monday, my day off, with an 11 hour day! I actually could have also gotten 10 on Saturday volunteering to deliver phone books but had a hunting trip planned with a guy and his son who moved here recently from NYC. CCAs got 10 on Sat and 10 more Sunday starting Monday already 20 hours on the clock. Stupid phone books, no doubt postage rates cut so far so to be a big money loser for the PO. Money maker for the crew though!

Lost in Boston- Your day off never changes. The day of your holiday changed to Thursday. Saturday was still your day off

/m67110 LiB, hopefully your name won't be on a list from the District of carriers needing an 8-hr day. The computer should spit out the right information. Maybe the supe won't get the message. If they ask you, maybe say you heard mgmt saying there is no v-time due to the holiday. Then say, maybe somebody did not realize that. Let us know what happens.

/m67109 Thanks Hannah Banana. I had NO intention of saying a word. Maybe just an extra Thank You two weeks from Friday.

/m67108 Keep your mouth shut and let the managers be correct if you want V-time. Your day off never changes. Your holiday was Thursday. So this week is like any other non-holiday week for you. It is fun to let wrong managers be right. Smile all the way to the bank.

Need some help with this one. My N/S day was last Saturday and because it was a holiday my day off became Thursday prior. Tomorrow will be my fifth consecutive day of overtime. Managers are telling people that there is no v-time because there was a holiday this week. I contend that my week started Monday tomorrow's overtime will be penalty. Any experience with this one?

Our district misses about half the veterans every year. For two decades I have heard a line of management saying they would get that fixed. I couple of years ago the plaza sent out lanyards which caught all the veterans but the local's proclamation didn't come with them.
